Transplant denied!

Patrick Garrity wants to donate one of his kidneys to his friend Alex Crionas. Because Mr. Crionas had created a web site to recruit a donor, the LifeLink transplant center in Tampa is refusing to test Mr. Garrity to see if he is a suitable match, according to a story in today's Tampa Tribune.

LifeLink's behavior is outrageous.

If you agree, please send an email to Dr. Victor Bowers, the Medical Director at LifeLink. His email address is Bowers@lifelinkfound.org. Please also send a letter to the editor of the Tampa Tribune. You can access their online form at

There is nothing illegal about using the internet to try to improve your chances of getting an organ transplant.
